|River Oaks looks to bounce back|
The River Oaks Mustangs (1-1) look to bounce back after a nightmare finish to their game at Washington last week.
The Mustangs were held to just two first downs and 108 total yards, (105 rushing, 3 passing) last Friday night in a 24-2 loss in their second regular season contest.
Quarterback Ryan McGregor completed 3-of-8 passes for three yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions as the River Oaks offense never quite got going.
A huge bright spot for the Mustangs was the play of Vincent Moore. Moore rushed for 106 yards on 10 carries and had fine success rushing down the field only to see drives stall for the Mustangs.
McGregor was held to one yard on six carries and had to contend with constant pressure by the Washington defense all night.
Washington finished with 310 total yards (182 passing, 128 rushing) and controlled the clock in the second half with a few strong runs that kept the Mustang offensive attack grounded and on the sidelines.
Porter's Chapel (1-1) is the opponent this week and the key for the Mustangs will be to maintain offensive drives while contending with a powerful rushing attack from the Eagles' offense.
Porter's Chapel is coming off a 34-33 come-from-behind win over Bastrop's Prairie View Academy last Friday night in which full back Kruz Frederick ran for a 26-yard touchdown and then scored the game-winning two-point conversion for the Eagles.
Running back Jay Wiley also had a big game and gives the Porter's Chapel offense a combo of powerful runners for the River Oaks defense to battle.
"They have some real good skill athletes," River Oaks head coach Robert Hannah said. "We are going to have to find a way to slow down their running game. (Jay) Wiley is strong and a fast running back."
River Oaks, suffering their first offensive shutout in quite some time according to Hannah, has worked all week on holding onto the football and sustaining drives to put points up on the scoreboard this week.
Kickoff at Woody Boyles Stadium is set for 7 p.m. Fans not able to make the trip can hear the game on KMLB 540 AM.
